"As a full-time mom, full-time employee and full-time student, I was able to earn both my bachelor's and master's degrees thanks to UB's flexible class schedule. I've been able to apply what I learned from classes like Health Finance and Quantitative Management Methods to my everyday work, and having my master's in health systems management has already opened many doors for me. I'm proud to be a UB graduate. It gives me confidence to tell people I graduated from UB!"
